are you a thrower or a flusher?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Why do some hispanics throw their toilet paper in the trash instead of flushing?

Are u a thrower or flusher?

I don't mean to offend anyone. Dh and his family do this I never knew of this before we were together.

Okay I know people who have septics that don't flush they have trash cans for it, but they are covered. I wasn't pointing fingers saying that everyone who has a septic throws their tp away. I was just responding to the OP.

I have never tossed dirty tp in my entire life. I've always had a septic. Even if I just blow my nose on it, it goes in the toilet. Why would having a septic tank mean you shouldn't use it?

Quoting Whisper85:

People with septic tanks toss them. Not just Hispanics my DH is Hispanic and not once has he tossed his crappy tp in the trash can.

Same. They make septic safe tp. Angel soft for example.

We have a septic tank as do most of the people we know and nobody throws shit paper in the trash. That's just nasty.

Toilet paper gets flushed.  Tampons get wrapped up and put in the trash because they clog my sewer system and I do NOT want to have to call someone to come help me if that happens.  Talk about embarassing!!

That happened to me when I lived in an apt years ago. I couldn't get the toilet unclogged and the maintenance guy had to snake the toilet. It was a tampon.

I have to wrap them up good and bury them in the trash far down or my dumb dog will dig them out and leave them randomly around the house.  THAT...is also embarassing.  She also one time dig a condom out of the trash.  OMG...that stupid animal.

Sorry, I guess it just read as a general statement. By some of the posts it sounds like there's a huge misconception about what septics are used for. LOL
